Huawei has filed a patent for Bezel-less smartphone
After a recent bandwagon of bezel-less smartphone being introduced into the market, adrenaline is gushing up fast with leading smartphone players. Chinese telecom major, Huawei is reportedly working on a “truly bezel-less” smartphone according to leaked patent filings. Huawei could launch a smartphone with a 6.9-inch display with no visible bezels on the sides of the display. The company has already registered a patent at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for developing a full-screen edge-to-edge display smartphone.
It may be noted that other smartphone manufacturers are not far behind as it seems like Huawei has also found a way to make super thin-bezel smartphones that might come close to the Oppo Find X or the Vivo Nex. It appears from leaks that the patent was reportedly approved on June 7 this month and it tips at a smartphone with a rectangular housing and a full-screen display. The patent describes the use of new framing process as the existing ones are hampering the installation of edge-to-edge display on a device. The company could work around this issue by using metal strips that are glued to the sides of a device. This can be done “in a professional manner” using double-sided adhesive tape or glue so that it does not affect the waterproof and dust-proof capabilities of the smartphone. The rear panel is also shown to play a crucial role in the process as it houses the display. Alongside the side metal strips, the screen would also be fixed on the top of the rear panel using adhesive and this is said to help Huawei in achieving a smartphone with a high screen-to-body ratio.
Motorola has been granted patent which it filed on June 14. The patent mentions a technology that can help a foldable smartphone with flexible OLED display bend without being damaged. As per the patent, the bendable Motorola smartphones could feature a thermal element and an integrated temperature sensor. The element is said to increase the temperature of the display around a hinge to counter the effect of semi-permanent deformation or bending of the display. The temperature sensor could be integrated with the hinge (or hinges) and measure the temperature when the display is in the bent position and note how long has it been in a curved position.
